PS: John, once you're done trying to kill me, drinks are on me at Harry's.
1/1 Thanks tonnes for the birthday card, Pixie-girl. It was lovely. A.
Text to Wanda.
1/1 "Small mountain" was definitely a good description. My liver thanks you. A.
And to think I left sunny beaches back in Genosha... And no, I didn't strangle Cammie and bury her on the beach. She's staying on to sort out some work stuff.
Any way, I'm back. Magic class, we'll be back on schedule for Thursday's session - hopefully you've behaved yourselves while I've been working.
Kurt, Meggan, apparently I missed both your birthdays. Which is not on. Family dinner on Friday?
Following on from my last post with all the swearing, Topaz has left the mansion for a bit. For those who might not know, she's an empath, and the whole M-Day thing was pretty rough on her, so she's taking a time out in India. She'll be reporting in once a week and tabs will be kept on her - I won't jinx things by saying she should be all right, but yeah. That's the plan.
As far as the local mutant politics, India's probably a bit safer that most - they have the Imperial Guard as their national security force, and they're all open mutants - and Topaz is good at keeping her head down. Once she's had some time to get her head together, she'll be back.
Now I have to wait fuck knows how many hours for a flight to land.
Things have been going on while we've been away, I see. Fish-men from Atlantis not being the least. Let me get a cuppa and I'll wade through my email and the journals and write myself a to-do list, apparently.
Also - hello, all you new people. Amanda Sefton, resident witch.
There's always a first time, eh?
So, at the top of the main stairs, in that little alcove-type thing, you'll find a table set up with places for flowers if people want to leave them and this:
Stone's agate - those in the know say it's a stone of healing, protection, strength and harmony. The flame's been tweaked a little, so it'll never go out, never need fuel.
Since sharing is caring:
OOC: We can thank Walks for this.
Billy, what the hell did you do now?
Seriously, London, suck it up. I don't need this right now.

This is totally your fault, Billy Kaplan. Now stick it on your bloody wall and memorise it.
Oops. Time flies when you're in a city having a rebellion.
Um, so happy birthday, Gar. Drinks later?
Wait, if it's Gar's birthday, that means mine was sometime earlier this week. Double oops. Still, it explains the mystery cupcake that appeared in the fridge.
Ah, memories. And a note for my magic class - never try transformation spells on shapeshifters, or they might actually work.
Now, where's the aspirin?
Wherever Pete is, no doubt he's doing a jig to celebrate.
Any way, back home and catching up on things. Anyone care to give me a summary of the last week so I don't wind up staying up all night reading journals?
- Current Mood: tired
For all of you freaking out about how to explain going AWOL for a bit, the Prof took care of it, remember? Quarantine, notifications to work and school, all that? There was a post and all.
Anyway, that's what I'd use.

(And turning 25 wasn't enough, because now I feel old.)
And the expression on Strange's face when he realised just how old I was? Priceless. Poor bugger taught me magic back in the old days and has a habit of thinking I'm still seventeen.
(*just joking, Ange ;))
(at least we didn't cut it - thanks for that bit of sanity, mate)
(Poor Stefan. Me driving him through New York was hard on his nerves. ;) )
On a related note, Nico, can you bring everything we have on curses around to my apartment? Plus, I need to pick your brain about that charm you destroyed on Halloween. Anything you can remember about it.
The gunpowder, treason and plot
I see no reason why gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot.
I'll be having my usual Guy Fawkes thing on the brownstone roof tonight. A couple of beers, a bag of fireworks and a fire in a trash can. At least I don't have to worry about hedgehogs in my bonfire pile, yeah? Usual suspects, new suspects, all welcome.
(posting generally here since I have other things on my mind and I don't have time to ferret out who did what)
